Ginger Sesame Dressing & Sauce

by | Nov 22, 2018 | Dips & Sauces, Salads

This Ginger Sesame Dressing is one that I make almost weekly. It jazzes up any salad, 30-minute stir fry, or spring roll for a quick weeknight meal, lunch, or snack.

I am obsessed with toasted sesame oil. It has such an amazing flavour and even better when you use it to make this Ginger Sesame dressing!

This dressing recipe is not just a recipe, it’s the recipe. The recipe I almost always use when I make chicken and veggie stir fry’s, noodle bowls, or my Veggie Spring Rolls. Drizzle a stir fry with this dressing plus a sprinkle of sesame seeds, cilantro and a squeeze of fresh lime, and you’ve got a dish that absolutely bursts with flavour.

You can use soy sauce or coconut aminos in this recipe. If you’re gluten-free, make sure to use tamari as it’s free of wheat and gluten. Coconut aminos is a delicious soy-free option for those of you who haven’t heard of or tried it before. I love using it!

    I’m making this weekly now too. It’s a great dressing, dip, stir fry sauce, and sometimes I just eat it with a spoon. ;P

    Can I add tahini instead of the nut butter and sesame oil?

      Hey Mia! It will change the flavour but you could use tahini if you’d like to!
